I hate those, "I tried to be anorexic for a day, but-" quotes. You don't try to be anorexic. You don't choose to be anorexic, the same way you don't choose to be depressed, to have anxiety, etc. Anorexia chooses you. It controls you. It's a disorder, and it's not something to joke about.
The other day, a friend told me that I am the nicest person they've ever met. I want to live up to that, so I'm turning a new leaf. I'm going to be nice to everyone. I'm going to be confident. I'm going to be happy. So far, it's the best decision I've ever made.
I have a license. I have a car. I have family. I have friends. I even have a boyfriend. Yet it's friday night, and I'm home alone with no plans, no one to talk to, and nothing to do. So even though I have all of those other things, right now it feels like I have nothing.
"You know, it's been said that we just don't recognize the significant moments of our lives while they're happening. We grow complacent with ideas, or things or people, and we take them for granted. And it's usually not until that thing is about to be taken away from you that you realize how wrong you've been. That you realize how much you really need it, how much you love it." -One Tree Hill
“If there's one thing I've learned, it's this: We all want everything to be okay. We don't even wish so much for fantastic or marvelous or outstanding. We will happily settle for okay, because most of the time, okay is enough.” -David Levithan
"Some people don't understand the promises they're making when they make them," I said. "Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That's what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway." -The Fault in Our Stars
